I am wondering at what point do I start investigating into potentially having fertility problems.
I've been trying for a year. My circumstances are unusual in that a year ago, I got pregnant the first cycle I tried, miscarried, and have been unable to get pregnant since. When I first miscarried I comforted myself by saying "I got pregnant so easily, surely it won't be hard to get pregnant again". But here I am, one whole year later. We did take a couple months off in the middle for career reasons, but otherwise, we've been trying with lots of sex around ovulation and no luck. Everyone I know who was trying along with me (a lot of women) has gotten pregnant just fine.
I'm also unsure what the problem is. We just got my husband tested and his SA was far above average on all counts. I practiced fertility awareness birth control for YEARS before trying so I already know that I ovulate and have EWCM and a temp shift and a textbook cycle. I am only 30 years old. I am a healthy weight and lead a very healthy life. I read fertility books and I'm like "so what? I do all those things." I've completely cut out booze and caffeine. So I'm really confused about what the problem is.
I know many of you here are "veterans" who might understandably roll their eyes at me coming here. My gyno waved away my concerns. But I guess I'm wondering, when should I start to take this issue seriously? After how many cycles? What should I do first? Should I see a RE or continue to work with my gyno (who said she'd do the day 3 test for me as well as that dye-the-fallopian-tubes one, I forget the name).
Any thoughts or advice for someone who is potentially staring down the road of infertility would be helpful.
